- Takes forever to load
- has to be reopened every time the computer has hibernated otherwise doesn't find my iPhone
- NEVER syncs properly - I've just spent about half an hour trying (again) to remove some music, ticked the boxes, clicked sync annnnnnnnnnd........no change made angry

Just a small rant. I'm downloading the new update now, hopefully that will fix it hmm

misnevermind thanks for the reccomendation another I hate itunes here. I cannot get my music off ailing lap top onto a new lap top. Without taking a degree in software!

It never ceases to amaze me how a company which can produce such modern innovative and beautiful pieces of hardware can continue to use a piece of software which is just so rubbish. It just looks awful. Don't even get me started on how it works (or not).

It took me 3.5 hours last night to get iOS7 onto the iphone... I should have waited, bet it would have been a doddle doing it tonight. The servers can't cope with the world doing everything at the same time. It was worth the wait though, I'm loving the new features. Particularly pleased to see videos hived out of the camera roll into a separate folder (simple things...)

We are running 2 iPhones 3 I touch's and 2 nanos from the CopyTrans.
No overlapping no having to share and it's all quite quick and painless

Am downloading right now.

How do you transfer the songs and stuff from iTunes to CopyTrans? It's only downloading the stuff from my phone, I can't figure out how to do it!

I hate hate ITunes too and I don't really like my mac either it doesn't seem to do anything with any logic or ease......

It is so badly designed, by somebody with no intuition, like Amstrad or something equally shite.

cerealqueen - I went to university at McGill in Montreal for a bit. I loved it, but the 24 hour computer room only uses Macs. I just couldn't use them, so difficult!

I hate iTunes too. It's impossible to use without something not being visible, not working, or ending up being a HUGE hassle.

I like it! Have never had any trouble with it. And I find MacBooks ten times more intuitive and user friendly than pcs.

I swear I don't work for Apple grin

Hate it too. DD got a voucher from Santa and we can't use it because it keeps asking for extra security details that are IMO unreasonable. I have been using my account for years but all of a sudden it gets narky. angry

PigStack I set up iTunes when I bought my husband an iPod for Xmas a few years ago. When I got an iPhone, I tried setting myself up as a person and it just wouldn't do it!

I am so glad others have issues with iTunes...I thought I was the only one!
Have had no end of trouble trying to download music onto the kids iPod shuffles...
